Boyfriend Being Controlling About Career Path

Group Therapy: Boyfriend Is Controlling About Career Path

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

The first plan I had was to earn my associates degree in early childhood education and work in a daycare. They make little money and once I graduate I'd move near my boyfriend. Plan two, which I just conjured up, is to get a doctorate in psychology. I love giving advice, getting in people's heads, etc. so this career is very intriguing. When I told him, he leaned toward plan one.

He said that he would make the money and I wouldn't have to. Then he started bashing psychologists. I understand that he wants to take care of me and be the man; bring home the bacon but it's kind of selfish. I sense some underlying reasons. Can someone give me advice?
